Batting Practice With La Vida

January 29, 2013  |  Health, My Life

It seems that this past week was my version of having a batting practice with life.  You know the feeling when sometimes you feel that life is throwing balls your way as if its trying to play a rough game of ‘Dodgeball’, well to me it feels that way right now.  But I won’t let that stop me, the best way to deal with those balls, is not to dodge them really but to grab your own insane metal bat and brace yourself to not only hit a home run but to tackle on the next ball and the one after it.

You have to work hard, you have to stay positive and if you do… then you have a shot at a Silver Lining  – Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook

I may have received some disturbing news about my health, but at the moment it’s all a rough possibility (shhh, I’m in denial so let me have it hehe) but I might not be as sick as I am led to believe.  Taking the first step and attempting to solve the problem is the hardest but at the same time the easiest.  Today we have a more advanced knowledge of medicine than let’s say 20 years ago and there are lots of things that can be solved with either medication or surgery that weren’t before.

I might have been living with this condition for a long time now and it has remained dormant except for certain moments where I thought it disguised something else, another problem which was easier to deal with but right now it looks as if I was given the right pair of prescription glasses in order to see that it wasn’t as minor as I have thought before and that steps need to be taken to solve it.

I cannot come out and say what the condition is yet, because I would like to be 100% sure of everything, I would like to have a battle plan, a play-book of some sort to help me not only slam-dunk (yes I realized I went from dodgeball to baseball and now to basketball, what can I say I like sports :P) the balls that life keeps attempting to slam in my face but to be a better person about it.

2013 is becoming more of an enlightenment year for me, one to overcome health struggles on the personal side as well as the family side.  But I’d like to say one thing to life, “BRING IT ON!
